Compost Class

Silver Creek Coffee House, 111 N Water St, Silverton, OR 97381

A well made compost is as good as gold when you want your garden to thrive with healthy plants and nutrient rich produce, but compost can easily go wrong with the wrong recipe or the wrong conditions. Permaculture educator, Lichen June, of the NW Permaculture Institute, teaches this fun and fact filled class. Learn about soil structure and function, how plants eat, pH effect on available nutrients, weeds as indicators and paramedics, compost recipe and care, and how to adjust that recipe when things go wrong or when you need to speed up the process. $15 Silverton Food Co-op members, $20 general.

Shifting focus for NWPI

NW Permaculture Institute is shifting focus in order to make best use of our volunteers, time, and resources.  Moving toward our goal of offering more classes, we are taking some time to restructure and we are reducing the number of film events for our Salem film series.  There will be no film in May, June, or July 2017.  We hope to be announcing a film for August 24th very soon.  “Ancient Futures: Learning from Ladakh,” will be shown at a later date.  Thank you for your patience with the changes, and we look forward to seeing you at future events.
